Integrated above the graphics card dedicated graphics card, I think?

OK, just to put my problems in perspective, I have a laptop-> Hp pavilion dv6 (on the laptop). It is 2 months old, has a processor intel i5 2.30 GHz processor (Duo of course). I have a graphics card integrated on the motherboard according to the usual and a dedicated Radeon 6490 M. in the past, I've never used Nvidia so I'm not at all familiar with the material.

The problem I have is when I go to play a steam game (for example today, counter strike source (CS source)) said that the graphics card I use is not known for their serves. Then I'm fine, if that's the case, the computer must choose using built-in dedicated memory (the best clear). Now for the players no, engine cs source is not really powerful compared to our days the games.

My logic is that a graphics card as up-to-date as mine and the fees I paid for the laptop, I should have dedicated memory and computing power necessary to run the game to its full potential. Its really frustrating, I suggest that person never buy HP again. I already have so many problems. Maybe it's not right to blame the company material, but most of the problems were hardware problems (a part of the single Pass system - TERRIBLE!). I'd appreciate any help, ANY HELP reallly! Thank you



Your PC think that Steam does not need a lot of graphics computing power. So, it's not getting 6490 m and thus, Steam only detects the integrated graphics card. What you want to do is spend on 6490M before launching Steam.

  • Can I replace my graphic chipset with an integrated PCI Express graphics card?

    I am looking to update my graphics card. I did some research and learned that my motherboard is a N-Alvorix-RS880-Μatx (Yes, it has a PCI Express slot) and my current graphics card is an ATI Radeon HD 4200 (Chipset). Product information on my computer on the HP site said that "integrated into the graphics card or the card PCI Express x 16 slot are usable at once; they are not usable at the same time. "I don't know exactly what this means.

    Is it possible for me to get a new graphics card and use it on my computer? If so, what would I do with the current chipset graphic card? Or am I condemned to have to use my current lame graphics forever card?

    Thank you very much for the help.

    Hi Scott,.

    Please send the product code of HP to the exact address for your PC.

    When a video card is installed in the PCI-E x 16 slot, the bios will recognize this situation and will subsequently disable the motherboard integrated video processor.  It's one or the other but not both.

    Yes, you can put a discrete video card in your PC, but we need to know more information about your PC such as the size of the power supply etc.

  • Satellite 5100/201: problem with the video card or overheating?


    I have problems with video on a 5100/201 Satellite. It seems that when I press the left side above the graphics card or press a key on the keyboard on this side, the screen begins to be scrambled and vertical lines appear. To end Windows XP resets giving a critical error on the device and the video goes to 640 x 480. Same thing happens when you run Linux Suse 9.0.

    My question is what is the cause: map graphic damaged or overheating due to the fan not as effective as originally (my laptop is nearly two years old. Do you have someone be able to find the cause and solved the problem, also with the assistance of Toshiba?
    Any help welcome.


    I think the problem on your laptop depends on the fan.

    A colleague on mine has a 5100-603 and had similar problems.

    The Station changed the fan.

  • Upgrading the video card and power supply, these will work with my system?

    Hello, I am wanting to update my graphics card as my current one is finally fall behind on current games, BF3 beta is a restless nighmare and BC2 must be smooth running low (ick). I was satisfied with the weaker graphics for now, but its time for an upgrade. In any case, I think I have my selected updates and I just want to confirm that they will work with my computer until I pull the trigger. My current equipment:

    HP p6180t

    Intel Core2 Quad 2.83 GHZ

    8.00 GB RAM DDR3

    Vista 64-bit

    Creative Sound Blaster X - Fi Audio Xrteme

    1.5 GB NVIDEA GeForce GT230 [DVI, HDMI, VGA]

    I plan on upgrading the graphics card on an Asus NVIDEA GeForce GTX 560 (Fermi)

    And the power of a passionate Corsair 850W 80 + CERT (I know this is perhaps an exaggeration, but I can update to motherboards in the future to run two SLI cards and do not want to upgrade again)

    I removed the side panel to check the dimensions of the new card and it looks like it fits. The only thing that could be a problem of release the cables SATA for the hard drive and hard drive because they are both plugged into the two slots, I don't think that the two superiors would be no problem at all. Depending on the thickness of the new card is also, it may be very close to the sound card that is spaced only a slit above the graphics card. I have another location available PCIe x 1 go back one level more that I should be able to plug the sound card in if there is no problem.

    My question is that these two will be compatible with my system? (physical limitations side)

    Also, can I change which SATA plug the hard drive and disc plug in, without having to reformat? Is it just unplug and plug in the new housing? (setting power off + unplugged of course) Basically passing SATA0 and SATA1, SATA2, and SATA3. Or do need to be filled in order? (0 then 1 then 2, etc...)

    Finally, If I can't move the sound of a standard card, do I need to do anything other than the physically move when the computer is turned off and unplugged?

    Any help is appreciated, thanks!



    You have thought through all scenerios. Move the sound card does not any problems. The hard drive should stay in header SATA 0.

  • Satellite A660-17F - sensor above the keyboard lights stopped working


    I just got the phone two days ago. The first when turned on by pressing the power button. the small sensor that above the F keys were all lit and when I pressed them Flash and it stay on again. Also the above the mouse/Touchpad sensor and satellite on the lower left corner logo lit up.
    Then I found some software toshiba is not suitable and I uninstalled applications.
    Then I realized that these sensor lights are out now, they work, but they are not on all the time, only when I press it. Before they were all lit like the power button as well as the logo and the light above the touch pad.

    Do you think the problem is that I uninstalled some of the toshiba applications or is it something else? If it is a demand that it is?

    Thank you in advance?

  • Inspiron 3737 - pass fron integrated to the dedicated graphics card


    I got Dell Inspiron 3737 with integrated graphics card Intel 4000 and dedicated Radeon HD8670M graphics card.

    Several weeks ago, I discovered this laptop works only with integrated IntelHD4000 (Win7 x 64). I installed the drivers of the latest GPU to dell, but it's not not to solve the problem. I installed older drivers, but also, there is no problem.

    I decided to reinstall windows.  I installed Windows 7 x 64, all the drivers from the dell site in the order which they suggest. But laptop also only use IntelHD4000. In Device Manager shows two graphics GPU Intel HD Family and AMD Radeon HD8670M. Catalyst, AIDA64 and CPU - Z will find only Intel HD 4000. Reference Dell start diagnostic tools and Dell Online Diagnostics found no no problem (all tests was passed).

    I tried to contact the technical support of Dell and got the following response "what did you want us? You are no longer under warranty and it's your problem! ».

    If I understand correctly the video driver installation and switching between integrated and dedicated graphics are global problem. Solve someone has mentioned the problem and how?

  • ProBook 4320 s XN869EA and integrated graphics card? Replacement of the graphics card?

    I do experience freezes laptop who become regular. My opinion is that the reason frozen fixed in the graphics card. My graphics card is ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 and I would turn it off and try to use the built-in one. The Intel site said that my CPU (i5 480 m) should have integrated graphics, but I don't see it classified as "lspci" or "lshw" under Linux. Is it off somehow? Or maybe the CPU is a variant of i5 480 m without integrated graphics? If it is regular i5 480 m, how can I activate the onboard graphics? Is it possible to stop an ATI without removing the motherboard physically?
    And if something said is impossible to do, is it possible to change/replace the graphics card on the Probook s 4320?
    Thank you in advance.

    Here is the Service Manual:


    Your motherboard has only one circuit and a chip for the dedicated graphics card. The processor has the ability to put video in itself, but the motherboard should allow that. Yours is not the case. You can only change the video system by changing the motherboard.

  • Requirement of the graphics card dedicated for BB10 simulator

    Hi, the blackvery website developer, I found the infromation that BB10 Simulator requires NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT or higher to an ATI Radeon HD 2600 or higher graphic. This affects when even if the pc has the graphics card integrated rather than required. I mean I can run the Simulator very well, but this will affect anyway if I run an opengl project in the Simulator? Thank you.

    The BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha Simulator uses OpenGL 2.0.  If your graphics card does not support it you can have problems (some only show a black screen).

    If you see a black screen you can try the software rendering mode (choose option 2 before boots simulator), but you could still see some rendering issues using this mode.  In addition, it is going to be slower.

    Graphics cards cannot be updated simply.

    You will need to replace the motherboard with another which would have better graphics (if available for your model).

    This would cost as much buying a new laptop, so it is probably not a good idea to undertake such a venture.
